Unscathed Snow-Capped Sea Bright

Save for some standing water that turned to ice, Sea Bright and low-lying areas of Rumson overlooking the Shrewsbury River were spared major flooding.

The weekend snowfall left the area threatened by forecasts of flooding blanketed in winter white.

There were some remnants of minor flooding. Other than that, all was wintry and stark on the Shrewsbury River banks of Rumson and especially in Sea Bright.

More than three months after Hurricane Sandy, the small peninsula beach town that once bustled with a busy business district and beach clubs is mostly still and war torn.

Mountains of sand dusted with snow look like they belong in a strange desert landscape. Businesses are still boarded up with signs of the promise of rebuilding. The island in the Shrewsbury River bay sits snow capped with mounds of storm debris, among it probably personal treasures, not yet recovered or returned since the paths are not yet traversable. 

The beach, recently replenished, is barren, yet bigger.

Take a look at the photo gallery above for a glimpse into the Sea Bright scene from the banks of Rumson and beyond, today.
